Bashing on the keyboard with
Those agitated fingers,
Realising money’s slipping
Through my fingers faster than
The grains of sand that mark the time,
We wish we could hold back,
Anything at all to stop
This day that feels like end of days.
With Facebook going down yesterday I can only assume that it was a bad day at the office for Mark Zuckerberg. I heard on the news this morning that he lost $4 billion in an afternoon!
It just reminded me of those days when you realise you’ve really screwed up and you want nothing more than to either turn back the clocks or cover up exactly what you’ve done.
I heard a story once where a guy at the company I worked for did something wrong and he tried to cover it up. When he got asked into the office to explain he said he was going to the toilet and then did a runner.
I wonder if Mark felt like doing that yesterday (or maybe the engineer who took down all those sites)? $4 billion is one really big mistake, after all.

It really was a bad day for Facebook yesterday! I think we all have those terrible days. The only good thing about them is that they end. And we survive them. It is an odd sort of comfort to know it’s not just you – everyone has THOSE DAYS.
I bet whoever screwedc up had an even worse day 🤣. It does kinda remnind you that none of us should rely on this, to get things done.
